This year the countries with the highest scores are Denmark, New Zealand, Finland, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland; while the countries with the highest levels of corruption are Venezuela, Yemen, Syria, Somalia and South Sudan.

By Jaime Garcia, Senior Researcher and Director of IPS Projects, CLACDS / INCAE

Typically the "January slope" is a term used to refer to that time of the year in which the expenses incurred during the end of the year holidays suffer along with the price increases, rates, and starting rates of each year and that affect people's purchasing power. But in 2021 this slope may have other implications as well, especially if we consider that we come from a 2020 year affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its respective economic and social impacts.

Management challenges in times of crisis

22 for September, 2020

As a manager, are you prepared to take on the challenges that come in times of crisis? Furthermore, have you prepared your team for these moments?

Decision-making in times of crisis is fundamental for the company, a manager must be alert, define priorities and turn challenges into opportunities. The decisions to be made also involve all areas and processes of the company, so training leaders within companies is of great relevance so that other employees understand the situation and adapt to the "new" business situation.

Learn more about the subject in this Webinar, where Professor Eduardo Luis Montiel, Academic Director of our Executive Master in Management, will talk to us about the responsibility that as a manager you have to train yourself and your collaborators to respond to new challenges.

In addition, you will be able to know first-hand the experience of two graduates of our Executive Master in Management, Andrés Barrios, General Manager of the Hotel Nicté de Nicaragua and Emma Aragón, Financial Manager of Inkia Nicaragua, SA, who from their reality will tell how they assumed moments of crisis and what were the results.
